G'day!

And, Merry New Year! Hopefully this makes it in before my self-imposed "released in 2017" deadline.

This list is done as part of the 2017 Boomer Top 100 Lists. This is an annual challenge run by the Boomers Guild - a community of gamers formed here on BGG.

This'll be my third such list - this year we used the Pub Meeple game ranking engine to organize our top 100. As such, there are some unusual movements that were likely due to my frame of mind at the time. On reflection, I wouldn't make too many changes to the way the list turned out.

I ranked 150 games in total this year (you can see a full list of statistics at the end of the list), and there are 26 new entries (but, only 14 inside the top 100 proper). I can safely say that every single game that appears in this list is great, and although I might express disdain with titles through the list, this is more reflective of how my views have changed over the years.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think! See any titles that I'm missing? Chances are I'm waiting for your recommendation, so please let me know!

Check out my previous top 100 lists here:

Beautifully complex game. I prefer this solo - unfortunately, I don't own it, and haven't had a chance to play it in the last few years. I have fond memories of my first few play-throughs though... those were mostly incomplete and incredibly time consuming, and I've since gone off solo games, so, the drop isn't surprising.

An exceptionally challenging co-op game. Its soured on me lately due to its pure brutality - and although that was very fun and exciting the first few times... continuous defeat on easy mode makes going back a tad difficult.

First new entry! I really liked this game. I played it two-player and haven't played enough of it to give it a spot further up the list though. Definitely look forward to revisiting this one - the theme was surprisingly awesome.

Odd. I thought this one might fall off the honourable mention list this year, but, as far as the "worst of the best" goes, I think this is still in my head the "Best of the worst... of the worst of the best". Which makes it sound like this game is bad, but it's not. It's not top 100 worthy. But, it's close!

Eek, that's a drop. I have very fond memories of this game from when I first got into board gaming - indeed, this is one of the first few that got me into modern board gaming. Unfortunately, that's all this game is now - memories. Even if I did own this game, I don't think I'd play it very often. It is an EPIC game. And I had an EPIC time with it... but, I lack time now. And thus, the need for EPIC requires more bite-sized portions.

Also, in reality I only played it like once some 4 or 5 years ago and have had numerous chances to purchase and play it again, and simply haven't. Time to move on.

A fun little social deduction game. It has its problems, however, and there are too many social deduction games out there that does what this does better. But, what it does it does different enough to still be considered good!

"A new story" of civilization unfortunately does not appear on this list. I haven't played it. If I had, I'm sure this title wouldn't appear at all (and I'm sure the new one would!). But, alas, another victim of time and neglect with nothing to farewell with but fond, fading memories.

Cats. BLACK cats. This game was purchased because... black cats. My wife does not require as much coaxing into playing board games these days - she's been doing this long enough to know that she's stuck with the board games, and no amount of cute kitties is going to better hold her attention. Instead she prefers games with substance now - Tzolk'in, Ra, Betrayal, Civ A New Age, Celestia... The cute game with the kitties that I purchased to help get my wife into the hobby will forever remain in my collection, if only as a symbol of -

ONE OF US, ONE OF US!

You know what. I'm going to say it. I hated Dixit. Oh, sure, the art is great, the stories you can craft are fantastic and I'd rather play THIS then any of the OTHER games that appear later or not at all on my list. But... I never liked Dixit - at least, not as a "game". And frankly, I'm glad to see the back of it. I HATE the "party game", "Pictionary/charades" aspect that the whole foundation of this game is based on. I always have. This game has been replaced. Long live the new king.

Aww. I was hoping this one would make it into the top 100. I really liked this game. There are very few games that appear in my top 100 that I've only played once - but, this is definitely one such game. I guess it just didn't make as good an impression as the few others that do appear later in the list. I hope to play this game again and maybe see it return to the top 100! I haven't played too many "pick up and delivers", but, I prefer this one over the others I did play.

All 2 of them.

Hey-hey! Yeah! Aw man, I'm so glad this game is still on the list. It's been on all 3 of my top 100 lists, hovering around the mid-to-late-90's. Every year I say it's on its way off the list, and every year it surprises me by sticking around. Damn, I love this game. Wish anyone else I knew did. I'm not a fan of "take that" games, but, this one has a certain charm to it that I can't quite put my finger on.

I love this game. It should/would be higher if I had actually played it in the last few years. The app is really impressive too, but, I haven't had time to really sink my teeth into it... and, I recall saying that last year as well...

With all the new entries this year, I'm happy to see at this end of the list a steady stream of games with minor drops like this one. It means that games are changing and evolving and my tastes are consistent but also adapting over time as new games come out. Or something. What does it mean for old classics like this? Well, still classic, but now old... and due to fall off. And, that's ok. It's still good!

Weird. I haven't played this game since last year... wonder why the sudden increase? I mean, it's certainly a great game, and deserving of the top 100. I think potentially... that I forgot about this game last year. And just stuck it on the end of my top 120 odd games that I did rank with the conclusion that "yeah, too late to put it in now, probably wouldn't of made top 100 anyway". Guess I should of given it more thought! Still, not sure I'll be rushing out to play/buy this yet.

This is a fun little Euro - not too heavy, and the mechanics are nice. Not too memorable with the theme though, and this one does tend to hit a bit on the "bland" side I suppose. Otherwise it's a very well executed game. My gaming group likes it a bit more than I do... but, if you asked me to describe this all I'd be able to say is "It's a game about keeping rats out of your city" or something.

Another game I haven't played in a long time. This year, I wanna talk about what makes this game memorable. The epic monsters, the badass tech system and the cool map make this for a fun hybrid game. I think there are other games out there that do it better... and that's why I haven't played it in so long. It is, however, a very good game.

Still not a big fan of the "charades" genre of games. As far as an alternative goes to charades? Yes, this game is hands down the BEST. It's fun, light, quick and endlessly better than any other game in that category. But, there is a difference between a "charades" game and a "party" game. Party games are great. Good party games have good structure, proper stakes and a sense of purpose. "Charades" party games don't. This is one of those.

I've played this a few times, but not at all in the last year. The drop is only natural. Hopefully not a one-hit-wonder (as follow-up games weren't as good as my first game) so, I hope to play this again to get some more mileage out of it.

Two rooms and a boom is a game worthy of a top 100. Couple of years ago, it was worthy of a top 50.

Next year I'm sure it will be worthy of an honourable mention, at the very least. It's a great party game - especially good with lots of fun like-minded people.

I don't know many people, nor do I attend many parties. If I did, they certainly wouldn't think like me.

Growing up sucks. But, when you do, your tastes change. What I get out of this game is important. I get a fun, silly game that shouldn't be taken too seriously about magic and wizards and spells and I get to cast spells and... the cost for that output was worth it, a while back. It was a pretty big cost - and, over the years, that cost has gotten bigger as other games do similar things with cheaper input. In terms of time, in terms of effort. It's a beer and pretzels game. It always has been a beer and pretzels game.

It's a great beer and pretzels game! But, my selection of other beer and pretzels games don't require as much time and maintenance as this game does.

This game is beautiful. Exploring in this game is one of the most satisfying things to do. Certain parts of this game are done so well. But there is a lot to this game. I've never seen so many mechanics thrown into one awesome game. And, in places, it suffers for it.

Now, THIS is a fun Beer and pretzels game that requires very little input in terms of effort. The drawback is, it can be a tad overly silly, and there isn't much depth to it, but, that's ok. It's better for it.

Ugh, a big drop (one of the biggest on this list). I haven't gone sour on this game or anything. It might be starting to show it's age, maybe, but, aside from that it's still a really great auction game. Play time is a bit long for the type of game it is, but, I really love this game and the implementation.

This is a good game! Paper money is a mild annoyance, but, otherwise I really like it. I... might have overstated just how good this game is when I first played it. I think in my head I wanted it to be a replacement for suburbia... or, some kind of successor. It is neither. It is its own thing. And, that thing is pretty good!

Another victim of growing up. I've played a lot of this game - it was one of the first games I purchased and played regularly. I love the hide and seek nature of this game, and other games that do this but with everyone finding one person I think fail to capture that as well as this game. I don't doubt mechanically, those games are much more sound. And, this being an entirely competitive game makes player interaction low - but, it's still a very fun and clever little game. It's problems are forgivable if only for its charm.
